We introduce a single-cell based simulation model of biofilm growth. Each microbial cell is modelled as an autonomous agent whose behavior is controlled by thermodynamic parameters, mechanical properties, physiological rules and environmental conditions. In the two-dimensional version presented here, a cell is represented by a closed chain of self-avoiding(More)
The aggregation of colloids in the presence of hydrodynamic forces was investigated, employing a numerical model that took into account the masses of the individual clusters and the number of intercluster connections established when two clusters stuck together. The number of possible connections was determined by analyzing all the possible nonoverlapping(More)
